Scope and content
The collection consists of a notarial document recording a procurement agreement between Petrus de Mathamala and Arnaldus Barnesii, Spain (Barcelona), 19 January 1424.
Manuscript on parchment, roughly 530 mm x 330 mm, with 37 lines of Latin written in a cursive documentary hand of the first quarter of the fifteenth century. Unevenly trimmed and badly damaged. Torn around edges, especially at top and right, with two parchment patches over holes, the smaller of which extends from the top edge into the fourth line of text; the larger (90 mm in height) disrupts lines 3-11. Some text and part of notarial countersignature at bottom edge lost due to trimming; general staining and discoloration throughout due to water and mould, some wormholes. The document was acquired rolled but is now housed flat; patterns of wear and creasing suggest that it was once folded quite small. A later cursive hand on the verso identifies the text as a notarial procurement: "Procura" and "Procura not(ari)al res."
